The venerated Celebrity Theatre is truly unequaled amongst Valley concert venues, not only for its unique theatre-in-the-round setup, where no seat is more than 70 feet from the action, and rotating stage, but also because a big chunk of local music history has taken place within its walls over the past 50 years. Since opening in 1963, the 2650-seat venue is currently one of the longest-running concert halls in Phoenix and has featured gigs by some of the biggest names from the pantheon of rock ‘n’ roll. The late Frank Zappa, for instance, put on a memorable performance with the Mothers of Invention in 1974, while Guns ‘N’ Roses visited during the apex of the hair metal era in 1988, and Limp Bizkit took over the joint just prior to the beginning of the late-1990s nu-metal boom. The Celebrity has also hosted such comedy legends as Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin, and Chris Rock during its five decades of existence.
